Any experience with this roll on waterproofer? New product from a known supplier?

Only Semco I know of, Davy, is Semco Energy, a natural gas distribution company in which I hold zero stock.

That's why I axed for a link.

Customs made a product named Semco back in the 90's, maybe the 80's too. It was an anti-fracture membrane made for interiors only. This was before Redgard.

This brings back old memories. Custom sold this in the early 80's and it was a self life problem. It was discontinued before RedGard was even thought of. The old formula was polyurethane. This appears to be a much better product, based on the reported specifications.

I bought the $8 sample.

Its rather thin, needs many coats, and if there are any imperfections in the substrate you get pinholes.

Not good for our use. Hydroban et al are superior due to their handling characteristics.
